LINCOLN, Neb. (KETV) – A mother was reunited with her son after he was found in a very unusual place.

According to KETV, a mother called police after she realized her 3-year-old son was not inside her apartment.

However, he didn’t get very far.

Across the street, people at a nearby bowling alley were trying to flag down police after finding a child stuck inside a claw machine.

The boy had somehow climbed inside the machine and was sitting behind the glass, surrounded by stuffed animals.

Employees called the vendor, who was able to let the boy out.

The mother was quickly reunited with her son and is not facing any charges.

Authorities say she was not cited because she contacted police as soon as she noticed her son was missing.
